I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice

I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
  And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith,
  And be closer drawn to Thee.
  Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
  To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
    To Thy precious, bleeding side.
Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
  By the pow'r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
  And my will be lost in Thine.
O the pure delight of a single hour
  That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God,
  I commune as friend with friend!
There are depths of love that I yet may know
  Ere Thee face to face I see;
There are heights of joy that I yet may reach
  Ere I rest in peace with Thee.

I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice, but... Draw me nearer!

I sang this song in the church as a young boy over seventy years ago and never sang it again until it came to me in the spirit after a bad experience in the church environment. What a solace to me. We serve a loving God!

This hymn ministered to my spirit several years ago during a trial. Hearing it sung on the radio again this morning encouraged me and challenged me to always continue to draw near to the Lord, and I was blessed to meet with the Lord during my devotions this morning. Thank You Lord for this website!

Yes, as I was writing in my prayer journal, this hymn came into my spirit which we sang quite often in church as a child. I love that it's so easy to search and find the correct words that escape my memory and then to have the tune played enabling me to sing along. The Words are so meaningful and precious.

"There are depths of love that I yet may know, Ere Thee face to face I see; There are heights of joy that I yet may reach, Ere I rest in peace with Thee."
